SHANK SIBLINGS – 1937

002aMy mother and her siblings, September, 1937.  Only sister Mabel was missing.  From left, Laura, my mother Anna, Virgil, Press, Marguerite, Geneva and Minnie.   Another one of my mother’s hand made dresses.  Just look at that collar!  Another photo below.

002bFrom left, Laura, Press, Marguerite, Minnie, Anna, Virgil and Geneva.  Laura was the oldest and Geneva the youngest, they are standing in birth order, though sister Mabel was missing and was born between Press and Marguerite.  There was a first baby that died, and a last baby that also died, with two more that died in between, four little baby boys; and Laura told me years later that there was also one miscarriage; so a total of 13 pregnancies for their mother, who died at the age of 40.
